MJ moment

Michigan broke a marijuana sales record in April, with nearly $200 million in cannabis purchases, state data shows. The state saw about $168 million in recreational marijuana sales and $27 million for medical cannabis, for a total of nearly $195 million. Andrew Brisbo, executive director of the state Cannabis Regulatory Agency (CRA), broke down the numbers, which showed a notable dip in medical marijuana sales compared to a year ago (down 44 percent) and a significant increase in adult-use purchases (up 60 percent) in that timeframe.
